news. i love stuff like that. and today will be a good day, wouldn't it, lisa? >> really the hot, hot weather well inland. you folks prepare for that while the rest of the bay will be enjoying a pretty comfortable weather. that warmup we promised on the way with the excessive heat watch from the national weather service has been dropped. as we look outside, here's a look at our high definition emeryville camera. see the fog? there's a little haze out there. we have fog at our coast. it will clear. so the blues festival at poke street looks nice and sunny and comfortable today. a light west wind will allow for temperatures to still be in the 60s. but in the mid-and upper 60s at our coast with 70s still forecasted for the city. live doppler 7 hd not picking up much in the way of low clouds although we have dense fog along the central coast and there is fog coming through the golden gate this morning. also a little bit into southern
5:49 am
marin and also on the south side of the city there. so be careful if you are headed out this morning for a bike ride or run. we will look for the fog to leng entire the early morning hours. right now temperatures are mainly in the 50s, although the protective valleys of the north bay, 45 santa rosa. 46 half moon bay with visibility down to about a quarter of a mile there. 58 in mountain view with mid-50s and the clear sky in san jose. so certainly not as much fog as we had for saturday morning and today the numbers will be about four to six, seven degrees warmer inland. yesterday we saw the low 90s in livermore. still looking at temperatures in the upper 90s there. while 70s and 80s wrap around the bay and we will see the rapid warmup today when the fog pulls back and evaporates probably about 10:00 or so, 11:00 from the coast. we look at the warm weather continuing into tomorrow and
5:50 am
tuesday and then by wednesday looking at more of a general cool down. due to the heated to the light winds, the quick warmup and the low relative humidity, we have the particulate matter down at the surface, that ground level ozone so that is creating a spare the air day for poor air quality. inland east bay, santa clara valley and also up into the north bay. so the setup. it was double barrel high pressure to the north and south of us. so that will allow for this warm air, a bubble of warm air to overtake much of the bay area today. and also into the east bay, as well as the sacramento valley. so even southern california looking at warm weather. we have the light sea breeze at the coast. although we will lose the fog and it will still be comfortable there. keep that in mind. also the beach hazard still into effect until tomorrow and that's along the central coast, including santa cruz, the boardwalk there, natural bridges. so some dangerous rip currents to the south of us. if you are headed to oakland today for the afternoon, it will
5:51 am
be warmer than yesterday with upper 70s there to mid-80s. so nice afternoon. taking you back home, look at those mid-70s for san francisco. mid-60s half moon bay with the fog pulling back, 90s for the north bay, upper 90s east bay and 89 san jose and down by the monterey bay. a nice afternoon with 80s in santa cruz with 93 in hollister. so the accuweather seven-day forecast, it's been hot inland for, you know, much of the summer. the rest of the bay area hasn't had the warmth so today, tomorrow looks pretty warm, as well as tuesday. a little bat of cooling comes our way wednesday and more significantly the end of the work week. so i said yesterday it hadn't been a warm summer. >> yeah. >> and east bay folks, you know, beg to differ. >> yeah. a lot of the rest of us have been waiting for some days like this. >> yeah, i agree. >> thank you, lisa. you know, there are a lot of offers out there that claim to be free, but they really aren't free. so many, in fact, that when within offer truly is free eats

5:53 am
down, that is also going to be mimicking whether or not your real credit score, fico score, is going up or down. >> it isn't the only site. similar service the. credit seseme gives you a free fake fico score but there's a difference. >> i like credit karma more because you can pull your report every day and finds out how it changes every day. with credit sesame you have to wait a month for new information. >> credit karma is tieser supported and that keeps it free for the 7.5 million users >> a lot of the other free credit sites say they are free but they around. if you don't cancel you get charged. >> i wouldn't have used it if it wasn't free. >> another way to get a free credit report is go to but that does not include your credit score. we have links of everything mentioned in this report on our website at
